Which version of Linux OS would you recommend for a laptop with 1 core CPU? – Info Linux


I just found my sister’s old, I believe it’s called ‘netbook’? – I always called them laptops… anyways. It has an Intel Atom Z520 with 1 single core clocked at 1.3GHz, 1GB RAM, 55GB ROM available right now on XP. It currently runs Windows XP SP1 but as you can imagine, e.g.: playing an HD movie is very sluggish and overall it’s pretty slow – but surprisingly, it’s not as slow as you’d think.

CPU information, if you’re wondering: https://ark.intel.com/products/35466/Intel-Atom-Processor-Z520-512K-Cache-1_33-GHz-533-MHz-FSB

I was going to install Ubuntu until I found out it only has 1 core, that clearly wouldn’t work very well I imagine. I’ve checked out Lubuntu and Xubuntu which seem like potentially very well made versions that are similar in some aspects of Ubuntu in terms of ease of use, compatibility and speed (for this ).

I was just wondering if you guys would be able to tell me any other versions of that are sort of similar to Ubuntu (offering sort of great looking and OK performance for this laptop) I mainly plan on using it for small projects that wouldn’t require a lot, although I’m still trying to figure out what I could do with it. Perhaps hook it up to something and use it as a controller for a server of some sort (although the cards/wifi is most likely super slow by today’s standards) – not sure just yet. AFAIK even a Raspberry Pie is faster at the moment 😀

Thanks for the suggestions in advance. What would you use a low-end laptop like this?
